The Toronto Blue Jays have officially placed left-hander Luis Perez on the disabled list with a season-ending elbow injury, the team has announced.

To replace Perez on their roster, the Blue Jays have called up left-hander Aaron Loup from Double-A.

Perez was injured during Sunday’s game against the Chicago White Sox. It was determined Monday that the 27-year-old had suffered a torn UCL in his left elbow, an injury that will cause him to miss the remainder of the 2012 season.

Perez had been a solid contributor out of the Blue Jays’ bullpen this season. Over his 35 appearances spanning 42 innings, he posted an ERA and WHIP of 3.43 and 1.286 with 8.4 SO/9 and 3.4 BB/9. Perez also held left-handed hitters to an OPS of .586 on the year.

Prior to his promotion, Loup had spent the season with the Blue Jays’ Double-A affiliate. The 24-year-old maintained an ERA and WHIP of 2.78 and 1.324 with 8.5 SO/9 and 2.8 BB/9 over his 37 appearances.
